Arden Zwelling, after driving far too many kilometres, filed copy for the UWO Gazette and CFL.ca, and liveblogged for The Score with Justin Dunk. Hitting it out of the park in all places. When a Queen'sman says "a job awesomely done" about a Western student, you know it was good.

It was "ball-busting cold" in Calgary, says Monty Mosher. He was speaking literally, and click through to find out why. (The Chronicle-Herald)
Here's linebacker Jason Kosec's story, who was on academic probation before returning to the Mustangs. Money quote: "I’m glad I got kicked out of Western. It worked in my favour, lit a fire under my ass." (Toronto Star)
Dal beat St. F-X Saturday night; the X-Men were 5th in RPI going into the game. I had them a little higher than that in our informal, not-actually-published preseason rankings.
